This song sounds dramatic,
But I'm bad at writing words.
If you don't speak english
This Probably sounds pretty good.
You probably think I'm singin' 'bout
Some pretty serious stuff, but in reality
I'm singin' 'bout the lack of stuff
I'm singing 'bout this parts intense
And emotional, as long as you don't
Understand it. Your foreign grandma
Would love this song please send it to her,
And she'll probably tell her foreign friends
About the song her Grandson or Daughter sent her today.
And the song might hit the charts in her country if parts sounded like
COOOLDPLAAAYYY.

If the chorus sounds like COOOLLLDPLAAAYYY.
Then I'll put some la... la la's in there,
La la la la la la la la la la la.

Hopefully your foreign grandma listens to this song everyday, and if she
Asks you to translate the lyrics here's what you say.

A perfect translation does not exist, well at least not in your language.
But if you must know well picture this 50 billion rainbows and the sun is
Setting and the moon is setting also, and your there in a gazebo.
Then God descends from heaven and he gives you a million dollars. take that
Feeling then put into a song.

I could translate it word by word but that that would take way to long.
I've got stuff To do grandma, I don't have time for this.
You gotta trust me grandma, this friggin' song is brilliant.

    Real quick I think this song out is about toby ending with Olga. Look up his video where he tries to explain it and then watch this an pay attention to the words and his facial expressions. Tobuscus is very smart.
    You can find a lot of meanings in this song, he jokes about that you can't find the meaning in it. Maybe only Olga can or that his relationship or the breakup didn't have meaning. I think toby really liked Olga and also this song was published one month after the breakup video.
    Joking so hard about not being understandable or good, shows that hes tired and sad.
    Maybe he envies coldplay and in his pity,(coldplay) he who tries to make good songs and be good and cool and rich realizes hes hollow, empty like the song, and don't give a damn about Olga leaving him.
    When the grandma comes in the song just turns childish, to appettice his public who is majority teenagers and can't hope to understand what hes feeling with words. After the grandma comes the rainbows and god too, possibly a deeper meaning there, or just messing around. He says take that feeling and put in a song! Which means that he is trying to make his state of mind (breakup, sad, empty, for whichever reasons he broke with Olga maybe infidelity) reach whoever listens to it, and not just mess around.
    As clear as the summer sky now, you can see that Olga turns into Grandma by the end of the song. Look at his facial expressions.
    He doesn't want her anymore, doesn't want to tell why they broke or whatever the hell happened (in the video he said something about his friend Seth and her). In the end he who always joke about his inutility, his dumbness (trust me hes smart) like in uncertainty, agrees that he added double meanings to his song.
